Back in 2005 or so, I was doing a lot of photography at the company I worked for. Events, locations, products--you name it, i shot it. I stored all those photos on an external USB drive plugged into a Linux server I hacked together. I was relatively new to Linux, and learned most things by … Continue reading My Lightroom-Synology-Backblaze Photography Workflow
If you’ve spent any time in downtown Great Falls, you’ve probably seen Jenn and her laptop working on an article. She runs The Electric Great Falls, and she does a kick-ass job of reporting things that matter to Great Falls.
Flickr Back in 2005, I signed up for an account on Flickr. I wanted to be able to share albums of photos with friends and family, and Flickr did that incredibly well. Eventually, I started making photos public, and discovered the Flickr community. I’ve had exactly one photo make it to Explore, and that was … Continue reading Flickr, SmugMug, and WordPress
I've been trying to come up with a metal-themed print for the wall of my buddy's office building. I shot trains, random abstract metal, and anything else I could think of, but none of them really impressed me. Then I realized it needed to be a portrait. Luckily, I have friends with kids who thought … Continue reading Metal Portraits with Mya and Kaylee
I love data. And photographic data is the best kind. The Lightroom Dashboard gives photographers an awesome look into their Lightroom catalogs. So every year, I take a look at what I did the year before.
Now that summer is (more or less) here in the Pacific Northwest, I'm trying to get in as many fun photo sessions as possible. A few weekends ago, Kanchan joined Kayla, Ashlee, and I on a trip out to the Coast Range of Oregon for an afternoon shoot.
I got my first .22 rifle when I was 10 or 11, and I've loved target shooting ever since. Last weekend, a couple friends and I ran out to the mountains to sight in a few new rifles.
Ever since I started posting photos to Flickr, I’ve used it as a way to review the previous year. Reviewing the Archive area of my Flickr account is a great way to jog the memory when writing these Year in Review posts. Even if you don’t blog, it’s fun to run back through the memories … Continue reading 2013: A year in review
Auto-upload I’ve posted before about the best ways to get photos from your iPhone to your computer if you don’t use iPhoto or Aperture. Dropbox’s auto-upload feature is still my favorite method of doing that. But what if I want to skip the computer altogether? I use the Flickr app’s auto-upload feature. Honestly, I can’t … Continue reading Flickr for iOS: Auto Upload
Three or four times a year, I assist with various company meetings around the country. I'm the AV guy and the photographer at these meetings, and even though it can be a lot of work, (and semi-stressful,) I love it. This week I'm in Scottsdale for a site visit--the actual meeting isn't for a couple … Continue reading TUESDAY TIPS: Evernote for Site Visits
